ST. CROIX - Police are investigating two sexual assaults reported in Christiansted.
According to the police blotter, the V.I. Territorial Emergency Management Agency's list of incidents and the times they were reported to police, the emergency dispatchers were contacted at 11:17 a.m. Thursday and advised of an assault on King Street in Christiansted. That incident later was classified as a first-degree unlawful sexual contact.
A second incident was reported to dispatchers at 12:48 p.m. Thursday and initially was classified as a public service call, but ultimately was changed to a final classification of second-degree aggravated rape.
V.I. Police spokeswoman Melody Rames said Friday evening that she would get the information about the two assaults from officers, but that was not done as of press time.
